Period poverty is a serious issue for people with periods. ‘Share the Dignity’ is a charity that provides sanitary products to homeless women, advocates against domestic violence, and partners with educational charities and programs to support Indigenous menstrual health.
As part of this, The Women’s Portfolio is currently collecting donations for Share the Dignity’s March Charity Drive. Sanitary items including pads, maternity pads, incontinence pads, new and reusable pads, tampons, period-proof underwear and menstrual cups are desperately needed. Everyone at MLS has been super generous in the past with donations and we hope to continue this! #dignitydrive
